He doesn’t seem to be managing my father-in-laws health at all. Just quickly prescribes a new medication to add to his already long list of medications he’s been on. Follow up isn’t good after falls, ER visits, or hospitalizations. I do not recommend him if you want good care for your loved one.

I took my elderly friend to this doctor. She has a lot of complications so we thought to try this doctor. Three times all of them were a bust. He talked about what a neurologist said about her. My friend had to pop in to say I have never seen a neurologist ever. He was reading off someone else's chart. Plus he wants this elderly Medicare lady to come to him for heart condition and is always drawing blood but never talks about the result.

Worst doctor I have ever dealt with. Treated my elderly father. Appointments lasted ten minutes or less. He gave my father all kinds of instructions to treat conditions he did not have. Found out after we left that Gauss was reading off the chart of an elderly woman! He never looked at the name on the chart. I fired him THAT DAY!!! Would NEVER recommend this doctor to anyone!!!
